Explosion at US embassy in Montenegro

BBC

London: There has been an explosion at the US embassy in Montenegro, officials say, reports BBC. An attacker threw an explosive device into the compound in the capital Podgorica at around midnight (23:00 GMT), before killing himself, the government announced.
Local media have named a Serbian-born local resident as a suspect, but this is unconfirmed by authorities. The government said the device thrown was likely a hand grenade. No other injuries have been reported. The US embassy said all staff were safe following the incident. No-one has said what the motive could be. The BBC's correspondent Guy Delauney says many people in the Balkans still have weapons like the hand grenade said to have been used in the attack - a legacy of the wars in the 1990s. The embassy and surrounding streets remain closed. But people working nearby say the police presence is small and the overall atmosphere in the city is calm.
